A Fulton County judge has denied a request from District Attorney Paul Howard to stop a prominent Atlanta lawyer from selling his late wife's assets.
Claude “Tex” McIver faces involuntary manslaughter and reckless conduct charges in the shooting death of his wife, Diane, in September.
Last month, McIver held a sale of her clothing and jewelry. An auction of more items is planned for this weekend.
On Friday afternoon, Judge Constance Russell denied Howard’s emergency motion to stop McIver from auctioning her belongings.
